New in antiques and collectibles for Spring of 2018 are the colors of purple and green.
I'm seeing green in furniture, pillows and accents.
I am also seeing more purples. I think the purples are coming from the BoHo influence which is really getting hot. BoHo says comfortable and color.

Lots of green plants, live and artificial,and lots of flowers including dried and paper ones are trending now. Flowers embroidered in decorated items and clothing is also another hot area. Wicker and baskets go right with the BoHo look too.
There are lots of other themes that are popular for spring and summer. These themes can be seen in hats, pillows, shirts, signs and other decor. Cute little retro campers are popping up everywhere. Cactus and succulent plants on wearable crafts as well as home decor.

This includes real and artificial plants. Along with cactus and succulents you see boxwood wreaths and cotton. Look for maps as decor too. Galvanized baskets, containers and other decor are still strong too. Wood tones are also lighter with a natural look. Furniture pieces that have been sanded down to their natural surface and lightly whitewashed. In kitchenware I am seeing an increase in white ironstone pieces. Jadeite is hotter than ever. That includes vintage and new.
So what does this mean for the crafter, antique dealer, seamstress and each individual? In your homes use these trends to update your decor. In your businesses add these pieces to keep your inventory interesting and current. If you paint furniture be sure to add something BoHo like the ever popular mandalas.
Remember, buy what you love.
